Pressing Velvet

Try to keep pressing to a minimum as it can crush the pile of the velvet. You can use a needle board for seams that looks just as it’s described. It is a mat  or board covered with tiny needles that poke up though the pile and prevent it from being crushed. You can also use more velvet as a pressing mat as the pile from both sides will support each other. Sometimes a large plush soft towel can help too for larger areas.
